SISC #28: Show 'em Who's Emboss!

It's time for that latest StampInsanity challenge!!! This week it's all about embossing! Beth wants us to "show off your mad embossing skillz!!!" So...since it's something I LOVE to do, I had a blast with this challenge!!!

I embossed 3 times on this card. First, I embossed my light blue paper with a Fiskars Texture Plate (and then chalked the heck out of it!). I embossed with Verdigris colored powder (Ranger)around my sentiment. Lastly, I embossed in clear around the edge of my card, to make my blue ink pop.


You can see all of my embossing a bit better in this photo. Feel free to click on any of the images to see them bigger. Isn't the sentiment I used fabulous? It's one of StampInsanity's latest. And I think it's awesome! I will totally be using this one a lot!

Now it's your turn! Let's see your fabulous embossing skillz! Join the Groovy Gurlz for another awesome challenge! Want some more inspiration? Check out the rest of the Gurlz!!! Have an inspiring day!!!

Wow, very cool card. I almost did a glitter edge but then I didn't want to clean up the mess. I'm glad to see that it is as cool as I thought it would be.
Love your card and the mixture of embossing types. The embellishments are cool too!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
